A farewell to the Jetta Dragons/Cougar Dragons

Alas all good things come to end eventually and 2015 will see the end of the Killarney Dragon Boat Racing Club. For now at any rate. On-going commitments elsewhere and a lack of interest, not by students, but by adults, ensures the Dragons will be put on indefinite hiatus.

It has been a real pleasure and honour to be involved with so many terrific students, an incredible sponsor--Clarkdale Motors Volkswagen--and a fabulous paddling organization--the Dragon Zone. With any luck the KDBRC will rise from the ashes and take flight again.

Thank you to everyone who has been involved over the past 8 years, especially coaches Todd Wong, Steven Wong, Michele Ta, and Gayle Gordon. You helped bring skill, passion, and a lot of fun to an incredible group of students. THANK YOU.

And a BIG thank you to all the paddlers who made me smile so many times.

Paddles Up!
